ceiling -- the last time i checked, 87 americans did not die from the fiscal cliff or the debt ceiling. they are dying from unrestricted access to guns and congress is to blame. >> jennifer: give us some hope. if you have to put your prognosticating hat on which of the measures are going to get through this congress? will there be an assault weapons ban, background checks and a ban on high-capacity magazines. >> if general mccrystal continues to speak out that these are designed for war and maximum body damage, not for a civilized society, we might get that ban on assault weapons. we should get a universal background check for all gun sales so it's harder for criminals, the mentally ill and terrorist groups that come to u.s. gun shows because they can buy assault weapons without a background check in this country, we should be able to get that. the ban on high-capacity ammunition clips is just common sense. we should get consumer protection standards like we have for toy guns, but not real guns and then lindsay graham is so disingenuous -- he has done everything

with the debt ceiling because as we sit down here on the floor of the new york stock exchange watching a market that has largely gone up and not paid much attention to that fight of late, what are your expectations? can you expect anything better than we got with the cliff? >> i don't think we're going to see the debt ceiling being an issue. i think it would be foolish to hold the nation hostage by having a fight over the debt ceiling. i think we'll see it with sequestration. that's coming march 1st, not too far away and with the budget and the continuing resolutions. i think that's where the real fight will be, and i think we're seeing the consequences of an economy that's not investing, a government that has to pull back and what we saw in the gdp report yesterday, and, you know, who knows what we'll see tomorrow on the jobs report, but it's slowed down the economy and we're all waiting. >> absolutely. mark, good to have you on the program. thanks very much. >> thanks, maria, thanks, scott. >> we'll see you soon. the dow on pace for the best in 19 years or 24 years. it all depends on how you

a previous conversation with how we are going to fund the government and the debt ceiling crisis. we are looking at a long set of crisis here and trying to figure out how we will fund the government again beginning at the end of march. the sequester that supposed to go into effect. all of the administration is talking about how can we spend more money. what we saw is that it gave proof that our economy is depending too much on government spending. that our economy is living on borrowed time. also borrowed money. it feels like we have been drinking coffee in order to stay up all night. we know that is not sustainable. it is not sustainable for us to continue to borrow at this rate. we will start to see our economy contract if we don't get things under control. we have to address the fiscal matters anyway to cut spending. otherwise it is going to be even worse. charles: you started to talk about this. it feels like the economy ultimately has a price to pay. >> home ownership levels are dropping in this country. rentals are up. people are choosing not to own a home home anymore. also we

on the fiscal cliff, the three-month extension on the debt ceiling, have done absolutely nothing to resolve our long-term fiscal challenges. and given the fact that we have no long-term agreement, consumers are doing exactly what you're saying. they're hungering down because they're scared. martha: i think you have to accept that across the board, both parties do in terms of nothing being accomplished. >> everybody agrees on that. on all sides. there is no doubt about that. martha: we've got it all figured it out. we'll let them work on it down there in washington. thanks very much, guys. great to have you all here. bill: problem solved, right? martha: yep. bill: got breaking news, martha. getting some aerial pictures from calhoun, georgia. this is hour, hour 15 minutes north of atlanta, georgia. after the storms ripped through the area yesterday and overnight last night. some reports have six dead as a result of this huge storm that went through. some of the images earlier showed some of these foundations just completely rocked to the ground. that is the aftermath you're seeing, what appear to

before us is not a long-term solution to the debt ceiling or our fiscal predicament, nor is it intended to be. i am not convinced that, if we want a long-term solution and if we want to avoid facing yet another cliff, we need to restore regular order in the senate. i think anything short of that is not going 0 work. we have good people on both sides of the aisle, meme love -- people who love this country, people who really can work together if they will. we have committees set up to take care of these problems, but they're being bypassed. we've got to find ways of working through the committees where you have a number of people on both sides who have to deal with the uncertainties and the problems and the difficulties in these fiscal matters. i have confidence in our chairman, in his leadership, and i know this is not his fault. i think he would prefer regular order, as would i. it puts a lot more burden on us as committee members, but that's where it ought to be, and we ought to be able to face these problems, and we have excellent people on both sides on the finance committee, and i w
